Does anyone know what the average maximum amount of cash you can withdrawal out if an ATM machine in S.E Asia? I have a bank now that charges a flat fee of $5US to pull out money anywhere I go in the world. If the maximum amount of $ I can pull out of the ATM is too low in S.E . Asia than I might switch banks.
-thanks;)

For ATMs in Malaysia, withdrawals are subject to a maximum of MYR3000 (approx. USD930) per day and a maximum of MYR1500 (approx. USD465) per withdrawal. But this is only for local bank accounts. I think the ATMs might have a higher limit for withdrawals using ATM cards issued overseas.

In Vietnam I was offered up to 9.5 million VND by one ATM (ANZ Bank in Hanoi). I noticed that the max. did differ with the ATM (different ATM's of ANZ Bank too). Problem with my bank is that they imposed their maximum daily ATM withdrawal even to these foreign banks (max of $200. a day), and so I was limited to 2.5 million VND).
I don't think there is a single answer to your question.

Your bank the card and the machine may all have limits...in Thailand the default limit is usually 20,000 baht.

local accounts in the philippines often have a maximum amount of 20,000Pesos per day for withdrawals and charge around 12 Pesos for inter bank transactions. Equitable bank allows dollar transactions but are subject to a fee which amounts to around 200Pesos per transaction. ;)

Hi,

In Singapore, the daily limit is SGD 2,000 and each transaction limit is SGD 1,000 for ATM withdrawals. The same rule applies to all ATMs in Singapore, there are no bank differences or card differences. :)

In Thailand you can get 10,000 baht in many ATMs. I have heard of some ATMs that allow you to get up to 20,000 baht but I haven't run across any. I did make withdrawals via ATM in the Philippines too, think the amount was the same. My debit cards have MasterCard and Visa logos on them.

My credit union pays the ATM fees for me even when I am overseas. (I use a debit card and keep a reasonable amount in the account. If I need extra money I can transfer some additional money from my bank to that particular account if needed.)

Many credit unions pay for your ATM fees, you have to hunt one of those CUs down though. My CU also sells travelers checks without any commission too!

If I remember rightly, in the philippines I could take out 10 000 peso at a time (about £120/$240) and I have a UK account.

In Cambodia at ANZ Royal Bank ATM's you can withdraw a maximum of $US 2,000 per day so long as your own bank at home allows you to go up to that limit. One withdrawal of that amount would be more than enough to last most backpackers through the whole of their 30 day visa limit. You will only find ATM's in the bigger towns though - Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville and Battambang.

I was in Malaysia 2 weeks ago. Maybank had a limit of RM1500. I also used ATMs in some other banks and the limit was either RM1000 or RM1500
